ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Aubrey and Col interview their good friend and neighbor, Danielle deGreef, about living deBest life with her husband and 5 boys. Danielle shares about her passion for hosting parties and shares some examples of great kid (and adult) parties they've hosted in the past.

Did you ever have a birthday duringthe school year? Nope, always in the seven June. It was alwaysin the summer. The earliest one I remember I was maybe like ten.I don't remember a lot before. Yeah, ten and my mom invited like allthe neighborhood kids and kids from school and she played this game that wedid almost every birthday. She had this game where she would wrap a candybar or something, but then wrap it like a million times with different youknow, wrapping paper, newspaper, whatever, and so you would like go aroundthen rolled dice and when you roll doubles you'd start unwrapping until we've alwaysplayed that game. I've done that for our kids a few times. Yeah, and that's the earliest one I remember, but I was probably ten. Iwas kind of old. I just don't remember. With that I Ifeel like anyone who has a summer birthday they kind of get jipped on birthdayparties a little bit because you can't send the invites out to everyone at school. Like I remember having a birthday party I was really young. It waslike five or six maybe, and we went to somewhere in town here isa fire man museum. HMM. They've got like old school, old timeyfire trucks and also you US friends or just your family know. I yeah, they were friends. They did parties. I mean I couldn't tell you whatfriends, but yeah, they do like birthday parties for little kids andit was yeah, it was a good memory. Years. You weren't everin school because you're an August birthday. August birthday always the summer birthday.In fact, when I was in school we used to walk uphill both waysin. No, sorry, different story. When I was in school teachers didnever say hey, for everyone of the summer birthday, pick a daythroughout the year and celebrate. Now they do that. That's nice. Yeah, so kids who have summer birthdays now they get to pick a day ora week throughout the school year and like re celebrate their birthdays, like theyget two birthdays. Yeah, that's good. Penelope always sad because we are usuallyin Idaho for her birthday in July and so she never gets invite friends. So we just actually did this half birthday for her in January when shehit her half birthday. We let her invite friends and we did an actualbig birthday movie party. Loved it. It was really fun. Like,oh, that's good that she finally gets to invite some friends or a party. She usually has cousins there and family. Sure, it's fun to have friends, but like, you don't need a birthday party every year, ordo you right? I know I we haven't done a big birthday party forcan we do something for me every we do something. That the one thatI loved the most. Remember we took penelope again and a bunch of friendsto arrested cheesecake factory. Yeah, and we sat them at their own table. It was amazing. We sat nearby Cole and I. We were afew tables away. Yes, and they fires there by themselves. All lettheir own table in, like we're super lazy. Yeah, and she wasturning, I don't know, like eight...

...or nine. They weren't that old, so it's for sure the first time they had ever been. Like wedid that with Daddy. Are Lone restaurant did. Yeah, so fun.I would totally do that again. Well, then we've kind of we've told ourkids we can either a do a birthday party or, you know,you go out to eat with a bunch of your friends, something like that, or we can get you like a big present. Right. So theykind of we let them choose whether they want the birthday party present or what'sbehind or be, which might be a sweater, a Zo Zoink Zonk.What was that show?

Don't really watch that's well, that's on. It's still on TV. Wayne Brady, is that his name? Oh, yeah, he's a lotbetter than the old guy was. It wasn't Richard Dawson. I don'tremember that. It was lame. Did you know that family feud was aspinoff of match game? What? No, yeah, they're not like at all. Richard Dawson was on match game and I was reading because, weirdI saw this clip on facebook the other day that had somewhat it was likea family feud show, but it was a host that I had never seenbefore and it was like a newer host. It was like a more modern clipand I thought is placed. You Harvey, Steve Harvey replaced, buthe's I don't think he is. I looked on wikipedia. He's the mostrecent one. I don't know what this clip was that I saw. Anyway, reading on Wikipedia, I was reading about the previous hosts, a familyfood, wikipedia rabbit. I was in a wikipedia hole. I went prettydeep.

Yes, anyways, everyone on the lips.We're going to interview our friend and neighbor Danielle, because she is like theultimate party planner.

We have afamily of five boys and that takes a lot of practice, juggling things andwhile we have a lot of positives, we have a lot of negatives,and it's sorting it out and how how to use that to live your bestlife. So just being real and using all of life's life's lessons to livedub best life. Yep, I like it. Our side of the listen, it's good. We're just talking about how when we go to your houseto we do the same thing. We don't go to like the sidewalk,we just cut across the rocks, like, Oh, it's so far to walkthose extra steps to the sidewalk. We should put papers in. Thatwould make it easier. Then we could go barefoot. Yeah, I havegone barefoot and then I have had to use the sidewalk and it's the wordway in Conto far and we're talking in extra what like fifty feet to usethe sidewalk, right, but still. Yeah, when it's thirty eleven,thirty twelve o'clock at night and we've didn't just finished around of teach you,no one wants to walk that extra fifty feet. EXACTIG deal. It doesn'thelp. But there's like a perfect trail in between up two trees. Thatwould be perfect. It's ideal. Yeah, between our house. Yeah, weplay teach you a lot with these guys late at night, just likesomebody'll text, Oh yep for teacher, let's do it, and it's likealways girls against boys and I feel like we win every time. The girlswin, right, every time. I remember it. Maybe not that.I don't know. I don't know. I don't know about that, butit is like a it's like a teach you booty call. It is whatit is. I love it. We've also talked. I've spoken with yourhusband Brent. Did you notice how I emphasize the Nti the Brent. Yes, because he gets that a lot. Like, how cool would it beto put a gate in between the two back yards? That would be sonice. Then you could actually send your dogs over for gg to play within our backyard. Yeah, well, interesting. Interesting enough, your daughterAddie actually saved fin in the backyard, like in the back of the parkjust yesterday. Really fingered out how to get he jumps through the fence.He can fit through the fence and there's a couple spots where the chicken wireisn't okay and he knows those spots. He knows where they are, andso we keep fixing them, but he keeps finding other little holes that hecan get out of and he just goes and on adventures. It doesn't helpthat our other neighbors have dogs and I think he's trying to get to them. So so him in the park. Yeah, and grabbed him. Wow. Now Finn is one of the forever puppies that we've referred to in previousepisodes. Right, they've one of twos before. Yes, they are verycharges aresessed with them. They're cute. Okay, so I have awkwardly personalquestion for you. Cole, just finished a big bowl of sugar cereal.So here's what's funny, because I just...

...walked into the office here and Iwas like, I just downed a whole bunch of starburst. You're going tosay cereal, and you totally and blew my mind and high starburst previously tome downing the starburst. I also down to a huge bowl of cold cereal, huge ball. I thought you're going to admit what kind it was andthen you did. I will, I will once she its. Let's hearyour awkwardly personal question. What is your guilty pleasure? SUGAR CEREAL? Anddo you eat it at ten pm like we do? Usually not at tenPM. I'm judging you right now. No, I judging us. That'sa good thing that I sugar cereal ATM to clarify, milk is kind ofhit her miss with my stomach. Okay, so I find that later at nightit's harder for my stomach to digest dairy products. Okay, sometimes Ihave to skip that worth cream too, and I have to decide whether ornot I'm going to go for a bowl cereal. I have done it before, but when you brought it up earlier. The type of cereal. I didn'teven have to think because I love lucky charms. Oh, interesting.Yeah, do you prefer lucky charms ten years ago or lucky charms now?They've changed. The recipe is different. I feel like. I do feellike it. It has definitely changed and I'm sure it's probably because of healthcodes and how we're all trying to get away from, you know, nonGmo and all those things. I don't think it tastes as good because there'snot cham yes, like delicious gm it's like a little waxier or something like. There's something with it. Either way. Our kids still only eat the marshmallowout of it. Yes, ten years ago they would have only eatenthe marshmallows and today they correct the marshalls. Even if we by chocolate lucky charms, these chocolate lucky charms, they leave the chocolate stuff. Yeah,I like marshmallows only it's so odd. Yeah, we can't buy that becauseand our kids, our kids, most of our kids, don't even drinkor don't even eat cold cereal with milk, which is yeah, they like itdry. What's the point? is so weird. Anyway, what wasyour guilty as? We can put in a baggy and send it with yourcold cereal of choice. Like guilty pleasure? Really like lucky charms, like ifthere are four cereals in the cupboard and one's lucky charms, that's theone I'm going to choose a hundred percent. But oat male squares, which arenot like that's not a guilty pleasure. It's like a really good one.That with a frosted one. Oh, this is gross, but I reallylike the reese's pieces, peanut Butter Cup. Yeah, those are reallywaxing guys. Are Gross Delicious. Those are Brent's favorite. So the theOAT mill squares, no, they're not. They're not frosted. They're just likequicker. It's almost like and stale, like without milk. Yes, thoseare good snacking cereal. Yeah, they're just there's like five bucks fora tiny box. My guilty pleasure the one that I ate just fifteen minutesago. What was it? Cinnamon toastcratch. So that's a close. So sugary. So cinnamon cinnamony, so sugary. It's yeah, you can, youcan eat that one all you want.

All the kids. I rarely eat. It was a guilty pleasure. Yeah, for sure. Okay,so we're going to introduce you with some questions making some assumptions about you.Okay, and these are things that I feel like I should know about you, but I can't think of the answers to any of them. You grewup in Colorado? MAYBE UTAH? Okay, we're at in Salt Lake County anddraper's Jordan. Gotcha. I did know you went to University of Utah, so I probably should have been able to guess that, but I knew. I knew. She growled new. Good thing. I'm coming to thecold. Knows these things better than I do. Your first job was asa signed whirler on the corner. Please don't know. I feel like youwould have been a good science where, though, because you've got the cheerleadingskills. I would have been great at that. I missed my calling,I actually had. I was a hostess at a restaurant for like two weeks, Oh wow, and then after that I coached gymnastics. So what restaurantit? Actually, I don't even remember the name of it. It washooters, wasn't it? Remember they hired me when I was, you know, fifteen. Yeah, I think that's illegal. But no, my cousinwas a manager and it was a small, little like a diner or something.Yeah, and it was really far from my house, but I thoughtit would be fine and after driving there for two weeks I was like Nope, I can't do this anymore. And then I didn't really like doing itanyway. So when you're coaching gymnastics, that, yeah, amazing. Yeah, job for a kid. Yeah, I loved it. Yeah, man, that's awesome. So the two weeks at a restaurant, I've got tofollow up. there. Two weeks at a restaurant. Did you put thaton your resume when you applied for the next job or like your application?No, I with coaching gymnastics since I was in cheer and you were known. I yeah, the cheer world is kind of small, and so Ididn't even really have to apply to the coach gymnastics. I just was kindof probing what this job like. I want a job and do you haveone? In they're like sure, nice start to work as well, soworked out well. All Right, here's my last one. I think thatyour high school crush was Justin Timber Lake. I do. Yes, that thatis true. I really Ta. Okay, so in high school,was that like top Ramin Hair Justin Timber Lake? Well, no, wrong, that wasn't it. You know what I'm talking about. I know exactlywe're talking about. That was like seven year old me. Okay, theinsane, well, propit, top ramen there and then sexy back Justin.Was My high school? Okay, all right, I actually went to thatconcert with Brent. That was our first concert that we went to together whenwe were sixteen. So very nice. Think that might be the first timeI've ever gotten one of those right, like actually right, like any questionthat I've ever guessed about. I maybe I think I feel like you gotone. Were right before, right,...

...and I said video from Miami Florida. That's the yes, yes, instead of Miami Globe. When I listenedto that in my pat was amazing. From Miami, like Globe, MiamiFlorida, from Florida. She's like no, okay. So we asked Daniel tocome today because that we want to talk about parties, like party planningand throwing parties for kids, and Danielle's like the ultimate party planner. Likethat could be your they are always having parties and it like good parties,amazing costume party like great parties. In fact, the first time we metyou guys, I guess we had kind of met, but when we reallygot to know you was at a party that you threw, a block partyfor like the whole neighborhood, that Christmas block party that we did right,and I remember being like blown away because they were like every detail you hadthought of. There were these little chalkboard signs that were like this beautiful,you know, script written for everything, for like the hot Coco Bar andthis moores and there was all this and I had brought like a side forthe barbecue and I'm like, Oh man, that was a great thing. AreThe great thing about the parties that they throw for adults and for kids, like when you throw a birthday party for a kid, like all theadults are welcome, and I remember we actually went to a party before thatone, when they first moved in. They had a birthday party, Ithink, for your oldest like a pirate crew same, yea cruise and Ithink I feel like we just sent penelope over because we didn't know and thenwhen we went to pick penelope up. It was like all the adults there'slike, oh my gosh, we so missed out on this amazing party.I remember penelope. She was so funny because she was the only one therethat she didn't really know anyone and she kept asking me if she could gohome and ask you things, and she'd be like can I have a sodaand I like yeah, of course, there's like, you know, Coolerfull of Soda's and she'd be like, okay, can I go ask mymom? That's hilarious. So she'd go, then she come back. Good,good girl, penelope, good girl. That's for that. But that's openelope, that's a door mom. So yeah, I my question is, of all the parties you've thrown, like what's your favorite? There beensome epic ones, so I feel like this is going to be hard tochoose. It is really hard. I try to go bigger every single partythat I throw, but some of my all time favorites was definitely cruises fifthbirthday party. We did a rock and roll birthday party and so I hada big red carpet and every one had VIP badges so they had to comeand check in with their family and then I have a big banner that saidcruises, rock and fifth birthday, and you got my grandma, who lovesto take pictures, was out there like being the Paparazzi, and so everyonehad to get their pictures taken. That's a perfect role for your ground.No, that's awesome best. And then...

Tony, Brent's dad built a stagein the backyard and we had Brent's little brother singing and play like guitar anddo an actual concept in the kids and it. We had a big andthen we had him start happy birthday, like singing happy birthday and we broughtout a good guitar cake that I made that shape of guitar. So thatone was pretty epic. And you how long? How long did it taketo plan all of that and prep all of that? I plan my partiesalmost like years in advance. I have a few parties like in my backpocket and it's like cruises birthday party that I think I'm going to finally pullthe trigger and do this year for his twelve birthday. I've been planning forlike four years. Wow. So it kind of just depends, but Ican just whip together a party like things I'm just putting it together. Imean his birthdays on the thirty this month and I haven't really thought it outyet because it's not I do a big party for every single one of mykids birthdays, but it's not like one of those big years. So likefive hundred and ten. You know, thirteen will probably be big, butI just I'm throwing it together, but I think it will still be good. Did you have a party every year growing up as a kid? Idid have birthday parties every year, they weren't nearly to this skill. Yeah, I don't. I love planning parties. I, like Aubrey said, Iwould love actually to be a party planner if I lived somewhere, youknow, where the market was prime for it. Yeah, feel like GilbertArizona is, but I I don't know, like I don't even know where itcame from. I just love it so much and it's high priority tome to make their birthdays special. That's awesome, and not just birthdays likethat's amazing. You've done all these amazing birthday parties, but like the oneswe've been to. Yeah, game of thrones premiere parties like epic, andalways everyone's like dressing up, getting really sorry about, doesn't your Saint Patrick'sstate party, Halloween parties, but then, yeah, the birthday parties, thelittle the Winnie the Pooh on that you did for the Times. Iloved that. was like every detail. These like amazing handmade sugar cookies,of like the honey pot and the bee hive, like bees nest almost aidthe behind, and just like every like you had that cool balloon. arejust like every detail. It's so it's I think I appreciate it, especiallybecause I do not have that skill and I do not have that like.My brain just doesn't go there. I'm not creative about the little details.I think I'm like I guess me to sit bounce you true. So it'simpressive. And the tie, I like. How much time would you say?You could take a guess for your hours that you put in for aparty like that. What do you think? How long does it take? I'vegotten really good at it. So I mean it would probably take mea lot less time than I would take the average person. I think youwere going to say me right. You...

...say take me a lot less timethan like and like, I don't know, say Aubrey. You're not wrong,and I do have a really great support system. So, like mymom and my grandma and and especially my husband and even my kids, theyknow that when it's Party Day, it's like it's serious business getting these partiesdone. But it does take me hours to prep because, I mean,it's some of the things that I could go and buy, but a lotof times I'm already spending hundreds of dollars on things. So I end upmaking them myself, because you could go and buy a blue arch, butI handmake that, like I put that all together. I make the cakes. I did buy the sugar cookies, but I've made them before in thepast. Those sugar cookies. I felt so bad when my kids are theycan have one. Can I have like no, like, let's just admirehow beautiful these sugar kies are, and then they just destroyed them. Oncethey have it's art. It's art. Those fine did because cakes you have, like a honey pot cake, yeah, like they're smash key, yeah,right, which were really well, they looked like they were made ata bakery. So like, yes, just that and and that's you cansave some money if you're able to at least make the cakes right, Yep, and I end up making a lot of like little things for cruises.Ten Birthday Party we had a cap it was called camp crews and we hadall the boys come over and stay outside as like a camp and so Ihad all it was all like camp themed, I guess, like fiery and Smores, and I gave them water bottles that said camp crews on it.So I had to get all that vinyl made and put them on the waterbottles and they got to take that home with a flashlight and so all thatstuff. It just it takes a lot of time. Yeah, so Iwould say hours and hours for each party, but some parties that doesn't take thatmuch. So yeah, unfortunately you've got a job that when things sloweddown. No, I'm just kidding. She does all of it while she'sworking. It's fine, you will, don't admit anything. You never knowwho's going to listen to this podcast. So No, she does not.She does. She does it all on her spare time, kind of staringoff and this, but you know she's thinking about next party and thinking ofsome good details for it. I'm they all know. Yeah, they knowthey've been invited. Yeah, they show up to them all. Yeah,I know that's the other thing that's really fun is when we go and evenif it's like one of the kids parties, you know, there's like all thesereally fun adults. They're like it's lots of people to talk to,Fun Games, like there's they're always fun for every age, I feel like, which is not easy to do. Like most parties, it's fun forthe kids or it's fun for the adults, and I think you're able to doboth. Yeah, is that intentional or is it just kind of yeah, yeah, I like to have the adults stay, and I think youguys know this about me and Brent. We're very inclusive and we love meetingNew People. That's why we have a pretty good circle. But when westarted doing it, I mean we're young for how old cruises, I guessit was kind of hard because we'd have...

...these people stay and we didn't feellike we connected on them. So and we realize that they would stay.So it became more of a party for everyone for me, and so Iwas like, okay, I know that these adults are going to stay,I need to make sure that they have drinks or like these are the adultfood and this was the kid feud and kind of things for them to dotoo, and it's also more fun for me. So well, it makesit makes planning and prep even that much more difficult, right. It's likeyou're planning two parties in one's. People do it for both adults and kids. Yeah, for sure. Okay. Well, we're going to play agame. Okay, and I really loved we played recently with some friends onhere at the newly wed game, and so I want to do that.Can we have Brent come over walk across the path? He said that hemight only be able to do it by phone. Okay, that might haveto call him to colamps. Let's do it. See if he answers.I don't know where my phone is. See, this is like real lifepodcasting right here. That's your phone. Yeah, and I need this onebecause I have the questions here. Do you someone call my phone? Yeah, you call someone, call my hair. It's probably downstairs next to the backof starburst. Yeah, it is. Hold up tears. Hi. Areyou ready to play a game with us? Yeah, I'd like toplay a game. That was supposed to be a combination of like Jigsaw,but it turned into Batman, a game just point point the like Microvia,just that. Yeah, okay, we're in play the new lag by game. First questions are for the girls and then Brent can tell if you're rightor not right. So how often does he shave? Not Enough enough.So what you're saying? You said you're saying that you like him to shavemore than he does. He I we had this conversation in the car.Actually, crus was like how did he even bring it up? He saidsomething about a sexy beard, if dad has his sexy beard or his crazybeard, and I was like yeah, and Brent's like, he's like ishis sex his beard sexy right now? And I looked at him and Iwas like, I think it's on the border of okay, crazy. Idon't know. I would say you probably shave like once a week. Idon't know. Okay, and then I'm going to answer and then you canboth tell us if we're right. And sure, I think it's once aweek. That's my guess. Okay, I think that you shave on theday, actually, once every two weeks day when the cleaners are coming andyou used to near leg they can clean up the sink. You'll do alittle bit, but like not really well, that's totally so. That's totally right. I plan when I do a big trim and shave, it's themorning that I know the cleaners are going to come clean the and we sothe de grief in us we have. We use the same cleaner and Iplan it. So what is it?...

Every other Monday morning I'm like makinga mess with all the whiskers in the sink, knowing that well, instantcleans coming gonna come and take care of that. Would you shave every week? Oh, I do it every week. Yeah, but I just don't wantto. It's kind of real hard to clean up. No brands afterclean up as the worst Brett. What about you? What was your answer? Probably every other week too. I try to go as long as Ipossible until Danielle says she would hold something from me if I don't shave.So so, Brett, I'm threaten him. I'm with you. Brand, Ithink. I think the crazy beard is the sexy beard. Just goingto throw that out there. Okay, here's our second question. What brandis the soap he uses in the shower? Oh No, Um, it kindof depends. A lot of times I'm the one who purchase it purchasesit, so you'd think you would know. I would think I would know.Is it the same one every time, or does it you just get whateverwhatever smells good. Yeah, last time it was from bath and bodyworks and I don't know. I guess sometimes you do show up with somenew kinds from like target. Maybe I don't acts. Okay, ever,never have you bought it for the boys? Okay, I'll answer and then youguys give you answers. I think it's dial what you've used more lately, but I was just thinking I have no idea what like the scent wouldbe. I think it's called it dial man smell. I bent. I'lllet you answer this one first. Right right now. Is that bad bedbath and beyond or whatever? When you have that's like the Rosemary and likeorange one. I really like that one right now. But that or wouldsay the doctor. I don't know what it is doctor whatever. There's likethe mint or Lavender, I mean know it's the mint one. That likepeppermint one. You're bathing with toothpaste. That sound really fancy compared to colesman smell dials. You get it from sprouts. Oh Yeah, teach reeoil teacher teach re oil. That's like the lacer repellent. Yeah, it'sand it's like watery. It's more like concentrate than it is. Yeah,it's my Gosh, I can't think of what it's called, but it's reallygood. So the one that I use on a regular basis yet it's thedial man smell, which makes me sound so basic because, I mean it'sjust dial I get it at target and it smells good enough. I usedto do like the old spices and all that, but like it's all justhi to do. There is one that I really like from bath and bodyworks. I think it's called teak wood. Have you have used that one,Brent? It''s pretty good. I'd recommend it. But yeah, they'reso expensive there, unless you go on...

...a sale day or discount day.It's I'm sticking with dial man smell. I think that we got both ofthose right. We did, because did you get both of yours for GeneralMans? Know you could. You said one week. Yeah, but Idid get it right because I said not enough. We'll give you a halfpoint that for that. So we're still ahead two to one and a halfago one. Yeah, because I think you picked like the kids soap,right. Yeah, they're like, oh, maybe that's for the boys. Okay, the boys questions for the boys. What is her favorite piece of jewelry? Brent, you want to answer first? I would say probably herPearl ear rings. Is probably when she goes back her go to it,when she wears them. All right, well, what do you think?For you, I think it's going to be those Alexananni bracelets. Correct.Yeah, I do think that the Pearl ear rings are definitely outside of mywedding ring, the number one choice, which my most savored I count.That is the correct answer, because I was going to say wedding, butthat's like a given, right. Yeah, I probably should have said besides herwedding side, the wedding right, always the favorite. What you'd hope. Okay, second question. What is her least Favorite Household Chore? Laundry. All right, without a doubt. He's sure about there are just somany chores that Aubrey hates doing. That is accurate. You know, Ihate them. What does? Yeah, all of the above. I wouldsay cleaning toilets. It's probably the least. Not what I thought of, butit probably should have been, because that is I'm actually clean the toilet. I know you better than you NTER's you. You do it a coupletimes a week, I think, and then, yeah, I'm just like, yeah, that's getting taken care of. So what was the toilet? WELSE? I didn't think about that. Washing dishes. I hate washing thedishes, especially if I've, like if I have made dinner. Luckily,usually when I make dinner cold as the dishes, because to do both,there's something about doing both. It's just the worst. Like I should neverhave to cook. And you know, you also hate to clean up afteras you're making dinner. You just leave. She leaves them mess out right.She uses the exter, the blender. Aware of this is that if Istart cooking when the kitchens dirty, oh you got to start with theclean. Chris some crazy he's like yeah, I don't, you like clean thekitchen before you start cooking. It just doesn't bother me. Sometimes she'llshe'll ask what I want for dinner and I'm like, I don't know,something that you don't have to use the blender for, because I know I'mgonna have to watch it. I just don't feel like clean. All right. So what was what was the DEGREEF's answer? Oh, for sure,laundry, laundry, but I mean you would have been correct if you saidnone. With the above, there's a reason why we pay for cleaners tocome to our house. Yeah, besides...

...the fact that we have five kidsand we have no time because we both work full time. But yeah,it's like I'd rather work full time than be home and clean my house.Look, it took like all day. Yeah, no, it's worth it, it's so worth it, but I hate laundry. I hate it somuch. I don't mind like doing the laundry, putting it in is fine, or even folding laundry, but I hate putting it away. And itwill sit on our bed forever until bren yeah, freaks out and it couldsend it with the kids because they're just gonna like throw it back in thehamper or on the floor. Yeah, I don't trust them to put itin their drawers. By the way, I did two loads of laundry today. Thanks, Ban appreciate it. Yours just sitting folded on your side ofthe bed. Actually put it away. Oh, look at you. Partof it I just set on my shelf in the closet like that's that's goodenough, as long as it's not on the bed, it's in the closet.
